I just bought Taxfreeway 2015 but cannot install. Windows 10 gives a message: "The System Administrator has set policies to prevent this installation." Do you have any suggestions to get past this?

No, there is no way to pass that message, unless you ask your system administrator for permission to install apps. You can simply do this using Run as Administrator when right click is used on file. A prompt will appear asking you to enter Administrator credentials. If the SYSAdmin allows, it he will enter the details.

Additionally, go to Start > Run > regedit and navigate to HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer. Right click on the left panel and use Create > REG_DWORD with value 0 and name DisableMSI.

Then browse to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\ and locate the product you want to install, delete the folder and reboot. Reinstall again and it should work.
